compaq presario v5000 beeps then nothing

I have a compaq presario v5000 laptop with windows xp home edition that will not power on.

when I turn it on, I get the following beep codes 1, 4, 1, 1

I don't know what the manufacturer of the BIOS is.

I have removed the battery and get the same problem.

I get a black screen, no logos, no activity at all. then it turns itself off after about one minute.

I removed both memory modules and reseated them. Inspected them for any problems but didn't see anything obvious like singes, etc.

restated with same beeping and nothing.

the first ram chip has a wire soldered to it, so I remove it from the clip, but not close up the laptop. The second one is to the right under another shield and is a b!tch to get out, but it can be removed. I did remove the second one and tried to start it again but still get the same beep codes.

Please explain "HP Type" , this is a compaq presario V5000 laptop.
